We would recommend reading the following pages in order to streamline the abstract submission process:

Abstract Guidelines – guidance on how to write an abstract for submission to a conference – before submitting your abstract.

Style Guidelines – contains guidance on how to prepare your conference paper. Includes a link to download a model paper and is recommended for reading prior to submitting your paper for review and again before submitting your final paper..

Review Policy – this page has information on the review policy followed for all academic papers submitted for the conference with a link to download a sample copy of the review form. You may like to read this during the review process for your paper.

Presentation Guidelines – gives guidance on how to prepare for your presentation at the conference.

Visa Information -
If you are likely to require visa to attend the conference, you should allow plenty of time to arrange it. If you inform us that you will require a visa, and send your full paper for review as soon as possible after the abstract has been selected, we will do all we can to get the reviewer comments back to you quickly.

Due to the large number of papers received for the conferences, authors are only allowed to present one paper. Therefore if multiple papers are accepted for presentation different co-authors need to present each paper. Author registration must be completed by 30 September 2009 and there are special discounts available for earlybird registration and group bookings, including a special reduced rate for supervisors and students attending together.

If you have suggestions for other information that you would have found useful, please contact Sue Nugus, Conferences Director.
